The Magic Gang’s buoyant summer harmonies are continuing to shine in the winter months. After Annie Mac premiered their latest single ‘Alright’ as her Hottest Record, and the track was also supported by Huw Stephens and John Kennedy. The quartet then completed a tour with Sundara Karma and they’re about to play a week of European shows as guests to Wolf Alice
The Magic Gang’s joyous brand of inventive power-pop has seen them rise to become one of Britain’s hottest emerging bands. Their characteristic cocktail of uplifting pop hooks, sweet harmonies, ramshackle rock ‘n’ roll energy and melancholy lyrics remains their unique calling card. Their first three EPs and the recent singles ‘Your Love’ and ‘Alright’ have prompted many to compare them to the likes of Weezer, Mac DeMarco and The Beach Boys.
As much as The Magic Gang’s songbook is the driving fact behind their upwards momentum, their live shows are proving to be an equally important factor. From festivals such as Glastonbury, Reading, Leeds and The Great Escape to tours with Wolf Alice, Hinds, Swim Deep and Spring King, The Magic Gang’s infectious enthusiasm wins over new converts every time they hit the road. After starting the year by being included in Apple Music’s New Artists 2017 and VEVO’s dscvr lists, their subsequent Radio 1 support has included three playlisted Hottest Records at Radio 1 with support from MistaJam, Annie Mac and Huw Stephens.
